    I have 2 RadListBoxes where items can be transferred between them. One is Source and the other is Selected. Users will move items from the Source ListBox to the Selected ListBox to select items. On PostBack, the items in the Selected ListBox must be saved. Unfortunately, when I check the radListBoxSelected.Items on PostBack, nothing is there to save.

    I started with just setting PersistClientChanges="true" but when that did not work, I added JavaScript handlers to the OnClientTransferring and OnClientTransferred events of the Selected ListBox that set trackChanges() and commitChanges() before and after each transfer. It still does not work. What do I need to do?

    The are ListBoxes are defined as follows:

    <rad:RadListBox ID="radListBoxSelected" runat="server" Skin="Vista" Height="120px" AllowTransfer="true" AllowTransferOnDoubleClick="true"  AllowTransferDuplicates="false" ButtonSettings-ShowTransfer="true"  ButtonSettings-ShowTransferAll="true"  ButtonSettings-VerticalAlign="Middle"  EnableDragAndDrop="true"  Sort="Ascending" TransferToID="radListBoxSource" PersistClientChanges="true"  />




    <rad:RadListBox ID="radListBoxSource" runat="server" Skin="Vista" Height="120px" AllowTransferOnDoubleClick="true" AllowTransferDuplicates="false" EnableDragAndDrop="true" PersistClientChanges="true" />

    OnClientTransferring JavaScript 


    function RadListBoxSelected_OnClientTransferring(sender, args) {
         var listBox = $find('<control ID>');

    OnClientTransferred  JavaScript

    function RadListBoxSelected_OnClientTransferred(sender, args) {
         var listBox = $find('<control ID>');

    I figured out what was going on. I was referencing control ClientID's in the page OnInit event. Doing this breaks viewstate and will break the RadListBox among other things. Removing references to control ClientID's in the page OnInit event solved the problem. The RadListBox now works fine.

    I have the same problem.

    Here is my source : (it's included in a regular updatepanel)
    <Prometheus:RadListBox PersistClientChanges="true" runat="server" ID="RadListBoxPaySource" DataTextField="libelle"
                            Height="150px" Width="300px"  AllowReorder="true" EnableDragAndDrop="true"  
                            AllowTransfer="true" TransferToID="RadListBoxPayDestination"/> 
    <Prometheus:RadListBox  PersistClientChanges="true" SelectionMode="Multiple" AllowReorder="true"
                            runat="server" ID="RadListBoxPayDestination" Height="150px" Width="300px" /> 

    When I first load the page, if the destination is empty (not filled by data):
    - i add from the source (using the button)
    - when validating server side, RadListboxPayDestination.Items.count==0 (whereas I can see it on the page...)
    - after the postback, the destination control is empty
    - if I re-add from the source, it now works correctly.

    I have nothing in OnInit, and in OnLoad, i just have
     if (!Page.IsPostBack) 
                    RadListBoxPaySource.DataSource = GetMyData()

    Hi Guillaume JAY,

    I have tried to reproduce the issues that you experience on a sample project, however, as far as I can see, there are no problems at all. Which version of the RadControls do you use? I am attaching my sample to this replay, can you reproduce the problem on it?

    I forgot to update my post.

    My problem was in fact that I was enabling/disabling the radlistbox from the client side.

    I changed that so I hide then now, and It's working.

    Thank for your support anyway !
